Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

 

The womb of this world is opening and bringing forth the sons of God. Galatians 4:19 They are going through the torn veil and entering into the Holy of Holies to abide in the presence of God and thus for His presence to fill their present. Mark 15:38, John 3:5-6 These symbolic illustrations point to and describe mankind transitioning from the finite flesh mind into the eternal spirit mind. And, what happens as you go through the birth canal leaving the water (womb/earth) and entering into the air (spirit/heaven)? You leave the unreal, death and lies, and enter the real, life and truth. Revelation 4:1

The real has been hidden in the unreal. Revelation 2:17  The real is the present moment, which mankind experiences as a flash because the finite flesh mind abides in the past and the future. Yet the present moment is the only part of our existence that is real. The past only exists as a memory and the future doesn’t exist. So as we are born into the spirit, our minds move into the present and that present expands to become eternity. Abiding in the present is how we dwell within the presence of God because that is where God exists, in the real. When we become present minded within the presence of God, we enter into eternity. When our minds change; we change. This is gaining the mind of Christ. It’s a state of being connected to and governed by the mind of God; thus the will of God. John 12:26, John 5:30, John 8:28. Abiding in the present is the only place we can truly do the Father’s will because there we are completely governed by Him.

This transformation is the work of Christ in us; who is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 It’s the new wine-skins and the new wine. This transformation is becoming as a child to enter into the Kingdom; moving into the present as we abide in absolute trust of our loving heavenly Father. Luke 18:17, Matthew 18:4, Matthew 6:33

Below are some mind-shifts we go through as we transition from a finite flesh mind into an eternal spirit mind. As we shift, we become a light in the darkness as the presence of God becomes our reality in the present. Some of these I’ve discussed in videos; some I have not; but I’m sure I will.  This is an amazing transformation, and above all we have to trust God to direct it and create it perfectly in us. Our part is to listen and follow, starting now. Zech 6:15

The points below lead to living in the present moment and God’s sovereign reign in our minds, thus lives.

  • We DRAW WISDOM from the pure consciousness of God and not from the mass consciousness of mankind. James 3:14-17, John 6:27, 63
  • Our EXPECTATIONS are of the PRESENT moment and are ONLY of the things of the SPIRIT (peace, loving kindness, honor, peace, joy, etc), thus no pre-defined physical images dictated by the mankind’s wisdom. 2 Timothy 2:20-26

(The above discussed in: Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life)

  • We SUBMIT our “FREE-WILL” (not truly free, but our ability to create “desired” images of the future based on our present surroundings and pursue those images) to God and let Him direct our will in everything, as we learn following our will only leads to harm. This submission is the true humility, and fear of God. Luke 9:23-24, Isaiah 57:15, Micah 6:8
  • In the moment, we FOLLOW the PROMPTING that comes to mind (action or words to speak) if it’s best to do it at that time. Otherwise, we recommit the idea/task to God and let Him bring it to mind to do in the future. Psalm 37:5-6, 23 What is best is determined by what aligns to the nature of God (what creates peace, love, kindness, joy, rest). This knowledge of God’s nature is the oil (truth) we need in our lamp (soul) to be lit (connected to Christ). Now you see why; it’s the foundation needed to be able to be present minded. Matthew 25:1-12, John 6:45 
    • Thus, planning for the future (lists, goals, etc) is greatly limited; instead we trust God to prompt and direct us daily and keep our expectations of the spirit. Isaiah 55:8-9, Galatians 5:22-23

(The above discussed in: Sabbath Rest and the Eternal Mind)

  • The present creates the future; thus TODAY we ACT on the WISDOM of God that creates peace, love, mercy, joy, honor, etc today. For, tomorrow is created out of today. James 3:18
    • One moment establishes and directs the next, thus we let God establish loving-kindness and peace in this moment by the wisdom He gives us.
  • We FULLY TRUST God to direct our actions/steps each day according to His wisdom. We listen in the awareness of our present and obey. Prov 3:5-6
  • We are AT PEACE and REST as we can abide fully in the present moment without worrying about the next. When we are doing what God directs each moment, we know we are doing the perfect thing at that time; we don’t need to be concerned with doing something else. Isaiah 26:3
  • We trust God with all our SPIRITUAL development; trusting He is working ALL for our good in each moment. Romans 8:28, Psalm 32:10 We listen, learn, and obey His voice more continually in conscious awareness thus moving obedience into our unconscious awareness. And, His mercy covers all as we grow in unity with Him. We trust Him with the increase of our growth; as it’s His work in us. Ephesians 2:10, 1 Corin 3:7 We trust Him to bring to mind the concepts/truths we learn from Him, when we need them. John 14:26
  • By grace, we are PURGED from MINDSETS of HARM that keep us tied to the past, thus to the pit; like blame, personal vengeance, and un-forgiveness. As a child; we lift up those who hurt us to our Father and let Him counsel us and work out the situation for the good of all. Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:35 We follow His instruction and don’t seek personal retribution. Matthew 6:14-15, Romans 12:17-21

(The above discussed in: Letting Go of the Pit )

  • We FOLLOW our NATURAL RHYTHM, thus not hurried/rushed or slowing down (procrastination, etc). Thus, God directs the happenings of our lives; while we let go of trying to control how the future occurs. Jeremiah 8:6
  • Once we commit all our desires to God, God directs us by our desires. Thus, we DO WHAT WE DESIRE, not what we don’t, this is a significant part of loving without hypocrisy. Psalm 37:4-5
  • We SEE ourselves, others, and God in the PUREST of LOVE for we are “seeing” from within the presence of God, who is love. In this “sight”; pure love is sown and grown in the earth. This love entails all the characteristics of God; honor, truth, purity, righteousness, mercy, justice, peace, etc. Thus, all our actions and words are of the intent of the purest of love. 1 John 4:16

We are like trees; we grow. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a tree that grows. Matthew 13:31-32 This transition is a process. Trust your heavenly Father to birth you into His Kingdom perfectly. It’s He who establishes your faith as He assembles the truth, His mind, in you. When God creates your reality, your present, then you are a son of God. Romans 8:19, Romans 8:14

A Mind of Eternity

A Mind of Eternity:

Truth Replacing Lies Masquerading as Truth

In a recent video, How We Carry the Presence of God, I described how we interact with our Heavenly Father and thus His wisdom. (note: I’ve been doing a lot more videos as the new wine is forming, thus I haven’t been able to keep up with all of them here, but please check them out for they hold very powerful truths: Stirring the Deep YouTube.) Through this communion is how we disconnect from receiving from the mass consciousness of letting mankind’s wisdom fill our thoughts, and connect to the pure consciousness of letting our heavenly Father’s wisdom fill our thoughts. When you make this shift you start to gain a mind of eternity, the mind of Christ. Romans 12:2, Matthew 7:21, Matthew 12:50

When you begin receiving from the pure consciousness of God; then what you automatically put into the mass consciousness is that purity. 1 Timothy 3:9, 1 John 5:4 This is how Christ, the Word of God, is going to renew the earth. He develops His perfect mind in those in true communion with His spirit, and they put the thoughts of that mind into the mass consciousness. John 17:17, 2 Thess 2:8 This is Christ coming with His saints. 1 Thess 3:13 It’s Christ’s spirit united to those who have been purified, then they spread His spirit, the spirit of truth and kingship, into the world. By having their mind cleansed into the pure consciousness of God, over time they alter the mass consciousness. Hebrews 10:22 Galatians 4:19, Matthew 25:31 It’s like medicine to a sick body. Romans 5:12-21

The mass consciousness will keep altering until it’s consumed in pure wisdom; thus all truth and no lies. (A lie is a concept/idea presented as truth promising a certain outcome.) 1 Corin 15:22-28, Isaiah 52:1-2 This is why the saints are the light to the darkness. The light is the wisdom of God, the darkness is the wisdom of mankind under the sway of evil. Matthew 5:15-16, Job 12:22

This pure truth will eventually replace all the lies. Lies only continue because the truth is not known. Without truth, people believe a lie as truth because they believe some thought, word or act produces something good; when it actually produces harm. When a lie is exposed by the truth in all its fullness, for there can be many layers to a lie, then it disappears. It was never real, so it ceases to exist.

Fear comes from a lie trying to hold on; it is what you feel when a lie is fighting to stay alive in your mind. Thus, as the lies are being usurped by the truth, fear will increase among those holding onto the lies. This is why there is no fear for those walking in righteousness; and those in unrighteousness are consumed in fears. This is also why you want to be seeking TRUTH in LOVE from God Himself; fear is a debilitating state of mind that produces significant harm. Proverbs 10:24, Isaiah 14:3, Isaiah 54:14

People operating by the corrupted mass consciousness exist in death. It keeps them bound in lies and false images about the past, present, and future. Lies are attached to images because they aren’t real. The image they are attached to makes them seem real. When the images are revealed for what they are; illusions, lies are destroyed because they were never real in the first place. (Images like what is a successful person, a happy life, a desirable woman, to be intellectual, a godly person, who God is, etc.) Because lies aren’t real, those who believe them and live by them are “non-existent” or dead. They aren’t living in reality. Psalm 115:4-8

Do you see how an image makes a lie real? Remember when you use to believe in Santa Claus? You had an “image” of him in your mind supported by people and things around you. When you learned he wasn’t real; you no longer had that “image” in your mind. If you lived a life serving an illusion like Santa Claus, what would your life be? The most damaging image we can possess is a false image of God; which religions create in the minds of people. When you have a false image of God; you are bound to death, the pit, and darkness and to all other images that imprison you; for He is the truth, way and light you need to be freed in every way.

The eternal mind is a polar opposite thought process from the mass consciousness under evil’s sway. Seek this mind of Christ.

This huge mind shift from operating as a dead creation of a finite flesh mind to a living creation of an eternal spirit mind has begun within the elect, the light bearers. I’ve been talking about this shift in recent videos, like Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life. To live in the wisdom of God is to live in the present moment in truth/love. The present is what is real, not the past or future. In the present is where God exists. To abide within the presence of God requires us to be present spirit minded.

“Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;
The fear of the Lord is His treasure”

Isaiah 33:6

Connecting to the Wisdom of God

Connecting to the Wisdom of God

 

This may be several posts … there is a lot to say but as you grasp this fundamental understanding I’m presenting, you will find it leads to the paths of righteousness, peace, and abundant life.

Consider three layers of thought/wisdom/consciousness: 1. thoughts of the individual, 2. cumulative thoughts of individuals, and 3. the Creator’s thoughts.

Our thoughts are all our ideas and concepts about ourselves, others, creation, and this life. Our thoughts form our wisdom, which is the ways we act, and that forms our overall awareness or perception, which is our conscience. It’s our conscience that directs us in our decisions.

If our conscience is pure, our decisions are good. If it is not pure, our decisions aren’t good. Hebrews 10:22 If our thoughts are of truth and love, then we have good wisdom thus a good conscience. If our thoughts are full of lies and deception we have foolishness thus a defective conscience. If we follow a defective conscience then our lives are full of pain, suffering, hardships, and tribulation. If we follow a pure conscience our lives are full of love, beauty, righteousness, and peace. Thus, the source of our thoughts is extremely important.

Source of Your Thoughts

Mankind’s Wisdom

Beyond your individual thought is the next layer of thought, the cumulative thought of mankind. This is the conglomeration of mankind’s ideas, concepts, thus the wisdom of mankind. It’s the mass dumping station of all individual thought; good and bad. We receive thoughts from this domain and put thoughts into it.

As a whole this mass wisdom of mankind seeks to answer questions thus govern people’s lives regarding all aspects of life; like what brings success, what is the nature of us and God, what brings happiness and peace, and what is the purpose of life? You can see this layer of cumulative thought of mankind in family units, cultures, societies, where there is a cohesiveness of beliefs and ideas causing similarities in behaviors and actions.

Most people seek wisdom or understanding within this sphere of mankind’s cumulative thought, wisdom or consciousness. Each concept has a bucket of ideas. For example, there is a bucket defining what leads to success. In that bucket are all the concepts and ideas of mankind of what brings success. Out of that bucket people select what makes most sense to them; and some add their own ideas to it. If a concept from that bucket doesn’t work people go back and seek another one; ie trends like positive thinking.

Because this sphere is made up of each individual’s ideas of what is good and how to live, it is full of contrary concepts and corruption. When people seek understanding of what is good and right from this pool of thought it creates chaos and confusion in their lives because it contains of all kinds of contrary ideas and concepts. Therefore division, lies, and deception are prolific.

The nature of this wisdom is that it is sought through the physical senses; your physical surroundings and perceptions. (Guided by God’s Eye or Yours?) Thus you are always seeking from what is previously known. You may put ideas together in new ways, but it is all coming from the same source. If you seek from corruption, corruption is what you get. If you seek something different or new from garbage, you will still get garbage. There are particles of truth within this realm, but mixing lies and truth results in lies. Galatians 5:9 As long as we are seeking wisdom from this sphere we are in a never ending circle of mankind’s wisdom that keeps our souls in corruption because this sphere is full of corruption; I’ll address more later.

The Heavenly Father’s Wisdom

The next layer beyond mankind’s wisdom is pure wisdom whose source is the Creator, God. This wisdom is the only wisdom that is truly pure, loving and perfect for it comes from an all knowing Spirit whose unchanging characteristic is pure love. When you seek God, you are seeking the thoughts or ways of His spirit relevant to your existence. This is seeking wisdom of the spirit, not based on your current surroundings and others’ ideas. When you seek His ways, you gain pure wisdom that manifests in your life in true peace, love, beauty, blessing, honor and so on. James 3:13-18

Where Does Your Mind Reside?

We all start out abiding in the sphere of mankind’s wisdom. Proverbs 22:15 From birth our lives are founded on lies because, one, we exist in a world where mankind’s ways/wisdom dominate and not God’s. Second, we start out operating by our senses; what we see, see others doing, what we hear, etc. This is how we learn as a child. We absorb and react to the environment we are in. Thus our foundation from birth is one of lies, which is building our house on the sand. Mathew 7:26 Lies about who we are, what this life is about, who God is, what our purpose is and so on.

People are sponges. We absorb characteristics from our environment and from people around us. This is evident in a child absorbing the environment of his family and the nature and spirit of his parents. This is why we are warned to be careful of our friends. Proverbs 22:24-25 This characteristic of our humanness is our weakness and strength; weakness when we seek and absorb the ways and characteristics of mankind’s wisdom, and strength when we seek and absorb the characteristics of pure wisdom, God.

Most seek wisdom from mankind’s sphere of wisdom, because as a child we operate by our senses (physical or flesh) and not by the spirit. Unless a conscious shift is made, we remain this way. Thus, we are detached from pure wisdom, which is beyond this layer. When we are governed by the sphere of mankind’s wisdom, our minds thus our lives form the ultimate prison because we are bound to the corruption of mankind.

However, when we are awakened out of this sleep of death that there is another way and start to seek the wisdom beyond mankind’s collective wisdom, the prison doors start to open as our mind is renewed. In order to find and follow this true wisdom, we must look to another way beyond our senses to be governed. And that governance is by the spirit of God within us.
